More Cheap Accessories: Shawls

Shawls are really cheap to make, despite what expensive dress makers may say! These pricey cover-ups can cost up to $35 dollars for a straight piece of material with one hem! How ridiculous! Beat this pricey mark-up by making your own.

Head to the craft store (boy are they tired of seeing you there)! and purchase material. You can buy tulle very inexpensively. This netting-like material is see-through, but works beautifully for a cover-up on a chilly night.

You'll need three yards of fabric (allowing enough for cutoff and mistakes). When you get home, turn the material inside out. Stitch along the edge of the fold. This straight stitch should make the material a long, hollow rectangle. Turn the material right side out. The hem should now be inside of your shawl. (where hardly anyone will notice it)! Iron the fabric and your ready to go!

If you want to get really fancy, you can add some beading to this as well. Follow the same method as you did for your gloves. Be sure you don't rip through this fragile material, though. The tulle is easily damageable. Don't pull too hard on the thread and you'll avoid this mistake.
